I was also facing a hospital stay and needed a new robe of that length. The robe arrived, I put it on and was in love. But in time it needed washing. I laundered the robe in cool water, regular cycle and dried it on medium heat. When I removed it from the dryer, there were small fuzzy pills all over everything. I still can't get rid of them. I wish I could. I still love the robe but I am not wild about of the collateral damage.
I purchased this robe couple years ago and it is still like new after so many use. This is a heavy robe, thick, absorbent, very warm. It's so easy and quick to wrap and tie, roll up the sleeves as they're long on me. Back then I was 125 pounds (2013) and now I'm 156 pounds (trying to lose this baby fat) and it still fits perfectly. Well, it's a size S/M. Overall excellent quality and well worth more than what I paid. Had bought one for hubby too. This robe will last for many many years with proper care.
